Friends in Ohio introduced Beverly and Jack for a blind date. Beverly spent the dinner talking with the wife and Jack talked with the husband. To this day, Beverly doesn't know why they went out a second time. But, they did and now have been married for 29 years.
Beverly worked for a Belgian company that sold wire to the many tire companies that used to be in Akron, including Goodyear, B.F. Goodrich, General Tire and Firestone. Today Beverly is retired. She plays golf, plays a social game with tiles, reads and walks.
Jack headed technical teams at Goodyear. Much of his time was spent in Akron, though he lived and worked a long time in Luxemburg. Jack is a golfer. He also likes to read.
